    Good selection of wine & beer, but also BYOB friendly, which is great if you want to save money or bring something different. Campbell Cheese across the street has a nice small selection of rare beer.

    The deep fried Montanara pizza is amazing. It sounds overwhelming and a little gross but it's actually more subtle and delicious. Plus they deliver and they're definitely my go to pizza place.

    Beware if you have a nut allergy the meatballs have NUTS in them! My friend who has a severe nut allergy told the waiter who gave him the meatballs with nuts in them-- a DISASTER! Be careful!!

    Try the fried pizza (Montanara) at least once but don't make that your main meal. Their Margherita Regina is amazing, and their rice ball is the best I've had ever. Try to save room for dessert! BYOB

    The Marinara a la Starita pie ($9) is "a three-component dish: a zesty, herbal tomato sauce amped up with garlic and spices atop a perfectly pliant, charred crust with a stray leaf of basil." Read more

    For a change of pace, try the calzone pizza. The dough is blackened around the edges and filled with sopresata, ricotta and mozzarella. It's a great, gooey delight. Read more

    First-class pizza in all respects, but there are a couple of unique items here. Try the montanara, a pizza whose crust is first FRIED(!) then baked. The carbonara is an interesting brunch option. Read more

    Among the best dishes is the montanara fritte, a pie that’s both fried and oven-fired. It emerges from the oven chewy with crispy pockets of air in the homemade crust

    Fried pizza good for a novelty, but not sure it has staying power. I'll have to try it again to be sure. The standard pizzas are amazing, chewy and charred and not to be missed.

    Must order the montanara pizza. It's deep-fried until almost cooked through, and finally tossed in a pan, topped, and finished in the wood-burning oven. The crust is puffy, chewy, crispy.

    There's no hiding sub-par flavors with fried here. Lightly fried, then topped and baked, resulting in an incredibly chewy, crispy, light, and tasty crust. Read more

    Love the neopolitan style pizza, dough is delicious. If you like spicy get the picante pie. This place is even open very late!

    Try: The montanara, a margherita made with a crust shaped and flash-fried before being topped and finished in the wood-burning oven, is a popular choice. Read more

    Great mix of classics and new tastes. The wine menu is good, and the service speed is just right for ordering a beer while you wait.

    Try the mind-blowing Montanara pizza, deep-fried and finished in a wood-fired oven for a chewy yet featherlight crust. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    Must try the fried pizza, if only for the crust. The crust is delicious. Also, don't miss the salami pie. Actually, all the pies are pretty solid.

    Sure, the food here is incredible, but it's almost impossible to get the wait staff to care about you after you're done eating. If you find yourself waiting too long, don't be afraid to flag 'em down.

    Fantastic option that's open late. Perfect for late night noms if you want a quiet end to the night.

    If the special pizza happens to be fig, prosciutto and gorgonzola, GET IT. So freaking good. And the crust is so chewy and perfect.

    Their menu is significantly different online from in the restaurant. Don't let your mouth water from reading the menu online.

    Good sit-down pizza (not a "slice" joint). Eat at the restaurant - pizza isn't as good to-go.

    The mille foglie is puff pastry with nutella and whipped cream, like a fancy hand-made Napoleon.

    The deep fried pizza is great, but it can't replace Motorino. They now have a liquor license but were flexible about BYOB.

    PS - all the salads are really fresh too. Why not start with a nice fresh salad? You'll feel less guilty after all that pizza.
